I've always had a thing for minotaurs, have been picking up a few here and there off ebay for awhile now. I know Beasts aren't the strongest book at the moment, but I wanted to put something fluffy and fun together with the minos I have, will be fun to model and paint, look fun on the table, be fun to play against, and hopefully not be completely gimp.
Everything that can have the mark of khorne has it. Manages 11 dispel dice, and 15 deploys.
Moloch, Doombull of Khorne with Hvy Arm and Great Weapon
Khorne Wargor BSB with Chaos Armour
Khorne Wargor with Hvy Armour and Great Weapon
Beastherd 5/5 with Musician
Beastherd 5/5 with Musician
16 Khornegors with Full Command and War Banner
5x 3 Minotaurs of Khorne with Great Weapons
2 Bloodbeasts of Khorne (Spawn)
Giant & Spawn tar-pit, setting up cow charges. Herds and dogs screen and flee/redirect, setting up cow charges. Doombull goes with 6 dogs (lined up 2-wide / 3-deep behind him) for big US, LOS/Range protection, without weak dogs giving up CR. BSB runs with Khoregors, making them 6x3 for 5 static CR plus a mess of S6 attacks. Wargor starts in a herd, but will run out asap to try to get to go hunting.
I think key to success will be protecting minos from ranged fire and ensuring I get combo-charges (except the khornegors, they can win on their own). Against lots of shooting or things I won't get to charge, I think I'll be in trouble.
As a challenge, what can be dropped to take the list from 2250 to 2k?
Looks cool Personally id go with units of 4 Minos. Also BSB + Khorngors = 17 models, maybe add the Wargor there? Though tbh, i dont think either Characters are that necessary. Also (personally, again) not a huge fan of Bestigor, bit too weak at range. Id say drop them for more Minos, although they do give the army a bit more diversity
I went with more smaller units of Minos in the hopes of setting up more flank/combo charges.
The khornegors only need 5 in the back rank for it to count as a rank, so with bsb their in there.
I agree that the characters aren't needed, but I like the models, and they get me more dispel dice.
The khorngors seem to have a bit more resilience to fire than the minos, and again I love the models. I'd trade more minos for them, but minos don't come cheap!
I'm hoping that with so many hard-hitting frenzied units that opponents won't be able to bait them all. The sheer speed of the army should allow me to push the opponent off his plan early...hopefully.
Any thoughts on dropping the list to 2000? Seems dropping the giant and a few bestigors is the easiest way, but I sure do like a giant!
I think id jut say drop a Mino unit or two.. maybe drop the Bestigor down to... 13, +BSB and run them 7x2 as a ''elite'' unit. But thats just me.. then youd be losing your large static res unit.

Drop a mino unit?! Or TWO!?!?
What about dropping the MoK from the Minos? Lose some dispel dice, but model/deploy count stays high (which I think is required to succeed with this).
Why not 11DD is a tad overkill anyway
